You just can’t keep me away from my chocolate chip cookies – they’re one of life’s greatest dessert pleasures (duh) and you simply can’t EVER have enough chocolate chip cookie recipes!

These, my dear paleo friends, are deliciously special cookies.  First, the flavor is absolutely out of this world – thanks to the fact that I used tahini.

Don’t be scared of tahini if you haven’t baked with it yet – as long as you use a quality tahini (not bitter!) you are in for an amazing treat.

My general rule for choosing a tahini is that I have to be able to at least eat some of it alone.

I’ve tried a few tahinis that were way high on the bitter scale, and blah, I guess you COULD add a bunch of other ingredients to cover up the aftertaste, but, well, it’s a whole lot tastier when the delicious nutty flavor shines through.

And even though it’s “nutty” since tahini is a seed, these paleo chocolate chip cookies are actually nut free, thanks to the coconut and arrowroot flours I used.

Look at that cookie!  Seriously – who would ever guess these are paleo?!   But anyway, back to the tahini – if you truly don’t want to use it in this recipe, you DO have other options.  I like options in recipes, and 4 years of blogging has taught me that you guys do too 🙂

So, you can really use any nut butter you prefer that’s creamy and “drippy” like the consistency of tahini – sunflower butter (for another nut free option), almond butter, or whatever your fave is.

The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy – since I used an egg + a yolk, you get a denser cookie than if you were to use 2 whole eggs.

I’ve learned that for coconut flour though, you almost ALWAYS need more than one egg to get a deliciously chewy texture.

The dough itself is quite sticky when you first mix it, another thing I’ve learned is that when using coconut flour, you never want the dough to look like “normal” cookie dough – that almost guarantees you’ll wind up with dry, crumbly cookies.

The solution to the sticky dough is to chill it in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes before baking.  You can see in the photo of the dough that after chilling, it’s firm enough to scoop onto the baking sheet without any crazy spreading happening.

After baking, the cookies spread and puff out beautifully and don’t sink or change shape after cooling.  Guys, these cookies are perfect – I couldn’t get enough of them!

Once caveat regarding the storage.  Since they’re pretty soft, they can sometimes stick to each other if thrown in a container, so I recommend allowing them to fully cool before storing them, and you may want to keep them in the fridge if they become too sticky at room temp.

That said, I tried storing them both at room temp and chilled and both ways turned out fine, taste-wise.  You can also freeze them with good results if you want to keep them fresh a longer period of time, so you really can’t go wrong here!

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flours, baking soda and salt, set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the tahini, maple sugar and syrup on medium speed until smooth. Add in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla and continue to mix on low speed until smooth.

  4. Using a spoon or spatula, stir the dry ingredients into the wet until fully combined, then stir in the chocolate chips/

  5. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Scoop dough with a medium cookie scoop 2” apart on the parchment lined baking sheet, using 2 baking sheets if necessary. If you use 2, bake only one batch at a time.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 mins or until cookies are set and turning light brown. Cool for 5 mins on the baking sheet, then carefully transfer to cooling racks using a wide spatula to fully cool. Once cookies are completely cooled, store in an airtight container either in the refrigerator or at room temp. They can also be frozen. Enjoy!
